Why many scientists believe Tooth Stem Cells (TSC) are the future of medicine?
Every year we see amazing results, thanks to TSC research and it is fair to say TSC research is at the forefront of medical science. The usage of Stem Cells has led to advances in the treatment of illnesses and conditions which were previously thought to be “incurable”.
TSC are currently used to treat more than 100 diseases and conditions and the list keeps expanding. Diabetes, Heart Attack, Spinal Cord Injury, Bone Diseases, Liver Diseases, Cartilage Repairs and Leukaemia are just some of them.
TSC therapy and its potential ability to cure many diseases is a hugely promising opportunity for those wishing to safeguard the health of future generations.
Little GiGi offers you the unique opportunity, to preserve your child’s own Tooth Stem Cells, which we can harvest from Milk Teeth, using safe, pain-free and reliable method.

What are Stem Cells?
Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells which are capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type, and have the ability to form other types of cells. Because of this, modern medicine uses them to treat many injuries and diseases.
Healthy Stem Cells have the ability to repair / replace the damaged ones and most treatments focusing on supplying the patient with large number of healthy and compatible cells.
Why store your Child’s Stem Cells?
- Stem Cells from your child’s tooth can one day improve or even save their life.
- Storing your own Stem Cells means they are always there for you. No need to search for donor – your child’s perfect biological material is there. Waiting.
- Using own Stem Cells means there is no risk of rejection – so it is the safest way to go.
- For successful treatment applications we need young cells and preserving cells from your Child’s milk teeth means preserving them in their prime.
- Stem cell medicine will become mainstream medicine in the very near future.
- The chances of your Child receiving a Stem Cell treatment throughout their life is, according to Harris review from 2007, as high as 1 in 3.
- Stem cells from teeth have wide potential for therapeutic application – they form nerves, tissue, cartilage and develop into other types.
Tooth Stem Cell Storage – Process
Research & Plan
Storing your child’s Biological material with the intention of future Medical use is a big and important step and it is important you have all the information you need to make a decision.
Talk to a professional at Little GiGi and we will explain all the details about the process and answer all of your questions.
Extraction & Sending Tooth to laboratory
In this step we will plan the extraction of the Teeth and organise the transport to a processing facility in shortest possible amount of time. In majority of cases we are after the teeth, who are on their way out – that is why this is the most natural and non-invasive way of storing own Stem Cells.
The Tooth is shipped inside a special transport kit in special liquid / solution, which allows the Stem Cells inside the Tooth to stay alive in the largest possible percentage.
It is important to understand the whole process will be organised by experts at Little GiGi. You will be informed of all important steps.
Processing & Cryo Storage
Upon arriving to the laboratory, scientists will extract Dental Pulp (the centre / live part of the tooth) and begin the process of expansion of Cells. During this process processing team closely monitors the sample, focusing on numbers, viability and potential presence of microbiological contamination.
The process normally takes between 2 – 3 weeks and as an end result we have a sample of healthy viable cells, in right number and with no microbiological contamination.
Such cells are stored in vials in liquid nitrogen tanks at approx. -196 degrees Celsius.
Certificate & Release of Cells
After the process is complete you will receive a Certificate with which your child can always access the cells. The cells will be safely stored and will wait for your child until needed.
